Gedit Symbol Browser Plugin

The Gedit Symbol Browser Plugin is a great plugin to get around large chunks of code quickly.

As the binary distribution for Unbuntu Linux hosted on seems to be outdated/incompatible, I have downloaded the sources for gedit and the symbol browser and compiled them.

I am making the binary for the plugin available here.

Details: Compiled with Gedit 2.30.3 and gedit-symbol-browser-0.1 on Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 i386

$ cp gedit-symbol-browser-plugin*.tar.gz ~/.gnome2/gedit/
$ cd ~/.gnome2/gedit/
$ tar -xzf gedit-symbol-browser-plugin*.tar.gz
$ rm gedit-symbol-browser-plugin*.tar.gz

Note: you need to have exuberant-ctags installed.
$ sudo apt-get install exuberant-ctags

This original symbol browser plugin isn't going to work with Gedit 3 so I've written a replacement in Python. You won't have to compile anything.
